Peninsula
Ranked #23 of 29 Hotels in Tanjung Benoa
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Peninsula Beach Resort - timeshare, is from research, one of the best around and the food, drinks and entertainment are all very good and resonably priced. A home away from home and meeting new people every week is good.
Currently the company is selling the Peninsula Bay resort complex (about 400m away on the harbour side of the Tanjung/Benoa peninusula) which is very up market but severely lacks surounding infrastructure like outside restaurants, shops and even a paved road. The buyers of these units are coming over to the Beach resort and taking up space at restaurants, pool- side/lounges and bars which is very disappointing because we have the atmosphere and the local surf sports, shops and restaurants at hand. I believe it will be some years before the other Resort has it's own atmosphere and attractions. In the meantime, the Beach Resort is too crowded also because people have been sold time shares at the Bay, but the rooms are not finished so they are using up rooms in the Beach complex.
Apart from this bad interference, the Peninsula Beach Resort is a great place and we look forward to getting there as often as possible even though we are only entitled to one week per year.

We arrived at the peninsula on 1/9/12 for 1 week. Yes it is a time share arrangement but the best thing is it is classed as home to many from young to old. It is like any other resorts in the world with it's good and bad points. As mentioned the new appartments at the Bay Resort are being built and wow are they something else, super big and modern, the resort is about 1/2 done and will take 12 to 18 months to complete.
The Peninsula is under renovations not that you would know it, they are doing about 3 rooms per floor at a time. We certainly didnt hear any noise from this.
Someone mentioned the sewer smell this is because they are currently putting in place an enviromentaly friendly waste water treatment system for watering the gardens.
The mixture of people are from old to young familys and retired couples which says it all for the resort as most have had 10+ stays at the resort, and i know why now it's a home away from home. Very clean and tidy through-out the entire resort.

The staff could not do enough for us and knew our names within hours of being there. A massive thanks to the pool and beach bar staff, Arnold, trainee"Akan", Jo-Jo,Ben,Jack,the 2 Merta's, and the food and beverage manager Bayu-"Handsome" LOL your a ledgend mate you guy's really made our stay.

The drinks and food are amazing at the resort and it's proven by the casts of hundreds from all the other resorts comming to drink and eat there during the day.Beautiful huge cheap meals and Bintang's at 17,000 each which is $1.70. Next door at the Aston they are 38,000 and dearer at other places. The Island Burger is to die for as are most of the meals we ate and my 20 yr old son ate 4-5 times a day there i dont think there was anything on the menu he didnt have.

The Sports bar was also a great place to chill out and have a meal of an evening,they have theme nights every night from trivia to karaoke and all the sports channels on the big screens.
This place is the same all the people from the other resorts come here to enjoy the nights and good food. Says it all again!!! The duck dish and 250grm tenderloin is a great choice here.
The Jackaranda resturant is a nice but small place for a good meal with a touch of class added to it.
As far as Bali Belly i dont know of anyone when we where there that had it and belive me i was asking. The thing is De-hydration is mostly the cause of any 1 being sick and people usually blame Bali Belly for there incompetance in hydration.

The pool and beach are quite good, there is beach shopping as well so good for the kite's and Bintang singlets or sarongs and so on. The most i. Well the wife paid for anything there was $5 Aus.
As far as another comment that you have to go to the watersports centre down the road goes, this is rubbish!! you can do any thing you want right there within 50 mtrs and its cheaper than the watersport centre by alot. Parasail, jetski.banana boat, flying fish, game fishing and so on. Ask the beach bar staff and they will point you in the right direction.

At the Loby front desk you can get a driver or a taxi anywhere you want to go, just ask them, all prices are cheap to. There is free WiFi at the hotel as well.

To finish off the total bill for 4 adults for 7 days of food massage drinks"alot of them to" buffet breakfast and so on was $1500 Aus. In Fiji last visit for 7 days cost me over $5000 so you do the maths.
This is a wonderful resort and we have made some amazing friends here,local and people travelling so i will be back in april 13 and in Sept 13 loved it and cant wait to be back.
A holiday is as only good as YOU make it.
Also a lot of people that stay here have no timeshare they have been sent by the people who do and want to share the resort with thier friends.

Room Tip: Will post photos soon.

We have stayed here a few times and have been in the Timeshare industry for quite a while. This would be one of our favorite places to stay, fantastic gardens, service and location if you like the quiet side of Bali.

We stayed in a one bedroom, 2 bathroom unit for a week, on the top floor quite close to the ocean and overlooking the gardens and pool area with a fantastic ocean view from the balcony. The hotel and room was looking a little "tired" in some ways however it was spotlessly clean. The unit was very spacious and had everything we needed. The staff were all friendly, polite and efficient. We ate in two of the restaurants and remarked on the reasonable prices compared to other hotel dining in the area (they were comparable to restaurants out of the hotel which were close by). This is a time-share hotel it seems mostly used by Australians aged 40+ although other nationalities and younger people were also there. We enjoyed out stay and would recommend it for a quiet, relaxing stay.

We have loved our stay at the Peninsula Beach resort. The rooms are clean, the restaurants great, access to any where we wanted to go was reasonably easy.

Bear in mind that my wife and I do not mind camping in the Australian out back or beach side so our single room apartment was very suitable to our needs.
All in all a gray pla r to stay.

We have been members of this resort for over 5 years, things at the start where to a very high standard, in the last 2 years (since work begain on the Bay Resort) issues of concerns have been ignored by managment, your room towels are almost see through grey in colour (should be white) and only changed once in seven days! the bedlinen not changed at all in a seven day period!! the rooms are very "dated" in bad need of maintance, smell of sewage...or dampness, I would not recomend either staying or purchasing time at this resort.

We do own a timeshare here...So love the guys around the pool...Adam, Hady, and Jojo....without them and their fun loving ways...it would have been slightly sad....food is great, the beachside bar is wonderful for pricing and service..

Room Tip: you are out of the mainstream of Kuta.....and it is only 80,000 for a taxi to kuta
